PostSubject: David Lynch's music news   Sat 20 Jun 2009 - 10:43




Blue Velvet director David Lynch has been making lots of music news in recent months. He contributed artwork and vocals to Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse’s Dark Night of the Soul project, enlisted Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr for a benefit concert at Radio City Music Hall and animated a Moby video.

Now the director also has a rock album of his own coming out. While Lynch doesn’t actually perform on Fox Bat Strategy: A Tribute to Dave Jaurequi, he contributes the lyrics which Jaurequi, who passed away in 2006 at the age of 50, sang. “This is what I call ‘modern ’50s’ music,” Lynch told EW about the project, with the site currently streaming the song “Shoot the Works”. The rest of Lynch’s band is comprised of session musicians from 1992’s Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me. The seven-song album is due out June 30th. Check the track list:

ne of the year's most talked-about and closely guarded albums may never be released. The questions keeping Dark Night of the Soul from coming out are as mysterious as the music.

The producer and multi-instrumentalist Danger Mouse and Mark Linkous (also known as Sparklehorse) are two of the most inspired and imaginative artists making music today. Together, they've crafted a masterpiece of both style and substance. To be sure, the music is often strange and gloomy. There's pain and madness. But Blue Velvet director David Lynch is involved, so what do you expect?

But even with a name like Dark Night of the Soul, the album has uplifting moments, with catchy pop and rock hooks. It's richly orchestrated, with layers of ambient sounds, infectious rhythms and singalong harmonies. It's the perfect marriage of joy and sorrow.

Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse wrote the songs on the album. But they got a bunch of other musicians to sing the tracks, like Iggy Pop, James Mercer of The Shins, Vic Chesnutt and Jason Lytle of Grandaddy.

And don't forget Lynch. Danger Mouse says he'd always wanted to work with the director, so he asked the filmmaker to make a book of surreal photos inspired by the music. The images show distorted human figures and scenes of suggested violence, like a gun lying on a table. Lynch also actually sings on the album.

Dark Night of the Soul is poised to be one of the year's most memorable records. But don't rush out to buy it any time soon. Danger Mouse says he can't release the album because of an unspecified dispute with EMI Records. EMI's representatives have acknowledged the dispute, but offered no specifics. They've released a statement saying "Danger Mouse is a brilliant, talented artist for whom we have enormous respect. We continue to make every effort to resolve this situation and we are talking to Brian Burton (Danger Mouse) directly. Meanwhile, we need to reserve our rights." Danger Mouse says he plans to release the book of David Lynch photos, with a blank, recordable CD. The disc will be labeled, "For legal reasons, enclosed CD contains no music. Use it as you will."

While the official release remains unclear, Dark Night of the Soul has already made its way to the Internet. Various sites started leaking songs online last week, and you can hear the complete album — with permission from the artist — here. Dark Night of the Soul is a beautifully produced record with a remarkable cast of musicians behind it. Listen while you can.

This is a really nice “dark-pop” record, somewhere between Portishead, Robert Wyatt and Gorillaz, with a real sense of lightness and poetry ; even without the involvement of David Lynch and of a massive bunch of featured artists (Iggy Pop, Frank Black…) this would be a good record. Maybe not a future classic ; maybe a future cult record, tiime will tell ; but it’s indeed packed with well-written, well-performed songs, witch nostalgic and catchy tunes. Who needs more ?

You like abstract drones ? This is for you. Dark ambient in its bleakest incarnation… If you’re familiar with the ambient sound effects in David Lynch’s movies (especially Inland Empire), you won’t be disappointed. If you expect anything exciting… Well, try something else !

This is a really nice album. At first listen, it’s just good old school doo-wop songs with melancholic overtones ; but then it really grows on you. Beautiful haunting melodies, like lovesongs for ghosts from the 50’s ; this record has indeed a definite Lynch-esque feeling, but can also remind of the most crooning Suicide/Alan Vega songs. At the same time deeply romantic and strangely menacing… That’s the kind of music Laura Palmer would listen to.
